Dennehy will be on hand to discuss his role as Matthew Harrison Brady in the revival at the Lyceum Theatre. Dennehy co-stars with Christopher Plummer in the acclaimed production, which ends its limited engagement July 8.

Inherit The Wind, according to press notes, is "a fictionalized retelling of the famous 1925 'Monkey Trial,' in which science teacher John Scopes was tried and convicted for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution, violating a Tennessee law that forbade teaching any theory that conflicted with the biblical conception of divine creation."

Hosted by New York Post theatre columnist Michael Riedel and producer Susan Haskins, "Theater Talk" airs in the metropolitan area on WNET/Thirteen at 12:30 AM.
